Photographer's Note

I was in the Philippines for a whole month. I stayed at my sister's home in Makati. While in Makati, we again visited Boracay's white sand beach for four days. My next postings for both TE and TL are photos taken from this beautiful place, in addition to what has been posted last year.

The Philippines is one of those hot [22C-38C], humid [85%] Asian countries loaded with lovely relaxed people, tropical jungle and glorious beaches - some of which are now the preserve of luxury resorts. The country costs little to travel in unless you stay at a fancy resort, and that's not necessary, there are plenty of down market hotels available. Manila, the capital, is polluted, uninteresting and not short of crime, but you'll have to stop over briefly en route to your island paradise of choice. Unless you have a lot of time you'll fly there. The dry season runs roughly from January - April, the rest is wet, though that could mean just a shower once a day or a full-on typhoon season. December-February is cooler, while March-May is hotter.

This picture was taken at White Beach, Boracay Island.
A tranquil atmosphere, friendly locals and very clean beach. The sand is exceptionally white, soft, never gets hot and stretches for 3 miles. It is rated as one of the top ten beaches in the world. There is no coral off White Beach, though plenty of dive boats will take you to good dive sites. Windsurfing months are Nov-April, best Dec-Feb. Here a boat is being prepared to sail around the island.

Some of the information above were taken from beach.com and bugbog.com/beaches/Philippines/.

PP Work: Adjust levels control; Adjust saturation; Sharpen; Remove noise; Adjust color balance; Crop; frame; Reduce size for posting.
